Four years ago, two guys named Paul and Tom founded the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. The name doesn’t leave much to the imagination; it’s a global photo contest to find the funniest wildlife images on the planet. The contest just took off because who doesn’t love funny photos of animals?!
There are some rules like you can’t snap a photo at your local zoo or anywhere else where the animal is held in captivity. Paul and Tom are all about conservation and post on their website:
“We want you to take up our banner of wildlife conservation, bang the drum, beat the cymbal and make some noise, we need to spread the word – wildlife, as we know it, is in danger, all over the world and we need to do something to help save it. You can start by going and having a look at what the Born Free Foundation are doing at www.bornfree.org.uk”
It’s great fun for a great cause! Some of the entries for 2018 are rolling in and they are nothing short of amazing! It’s remarkable that these photographers all happened to be at the right place and the right time. Check out 15 of them…
